Title:
Modern Cool
Release Date: 1/18/2019
Format: LP
List Price: (B57) $57.98 

(2-LP set) Patricia Barber's modern cool (Premonition Records, 1998) was the recording that made Barber an international jazz star. On the initial tour for this album, Barber played a four night stand at The Jazz Standard in New York where she was heard by Bruce Lundvall of Blue Note Records. This led to a string of Barber recordings for both Premonition and Blue Note, worldwide touring and unapologetic critical acclaim from which Barber never looked back. Audiophiles were well aware of Barber from her 1994 Premonition recording Café Blue. (Previouslyed deleted:9/1/17. Original release date:8/19/14) Sonically, modern cool copied the café blue playbook: same recording studio, engineer, and recording approach. Musically, Barber added trumpeter Dave Douglas to her stellar working band and showcased her original compositions more than on any previous recording. Like café blue, modern cool has been released in multiple formats, including 2013's Grammy winning Surround Sound edition. This 180-Gram, Double LP version is newly remastered by the legendary Doug Sax from the original analog mixes and is sure to be a strong addition to the Barber audiophile oeuvre.

Honorary Blues Legend Willie Buck Way is the name of a street in Chicago named after Delmark recording artist Willie Buck.

Willie Buck Way features seventeen songs of which twelve are new Buck originals. •"His vocals are sinewy and expressive (he demonstrates a powerful upper range that even a lot of his longtime fans will find surprising) postwar Chicago blues have long been, and remain, a contemporary music to him, and he delivers them with both urgency and élan." - David Whiteis

Dream Libretto
Release Date: 3/15/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A17) $17.98 

This CD is a very personal statement from Marilyn Crispell. Memoria / For Pessa Malka was composed as a memorial to her relatives who died in the Second World War, and to her parents, husband, and close friends who have passed on during the past several years. The five movements comprise a journey through suffering to redemption. First half of the CD is a trio with Tanya Kalmanovitch (violin) and Richard Teitelbaum (electronics), while the second half is a duo with Tanya. The seven violin/piano improvisations are not connected to the memorial piece, but they seemed to fit the ambience established by it.

The Forest From Above
Release Date: 3/15/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A17) $17.98 

It's been a long time since the release of the first CD by Fourth Page (LEO 619 Blind Horizons). Surreal, mystical and hypnotic, the music is like nothing you've heard before. It breathes and pulsates, it is scary and beautiful at the same time, yet it is utterly original. This new album covers a lot of ground from hushed ambience to immersive, trance-like grooves, folkish ballads and restrained bursts of abstract clutter. It is luminous, dark, seductive and edgy. The line-up is still the same: Charlie Beresford - voice and guitar, Carolyn Hume - keyboards, Peter Marsh - bass, Paul May drums.

The Jacquet Files, Volume 9 (big Band Live At The Village Vanguard 1987)
Release Date: 1/18/2019
Format: CD
List Price: (A14) $14.98 

(20% DISCOUNT THRU 1-25-19) In 1981 Tenor Sax legend Illinois Jacquet pursued his career-long dream of assembling a truly great big jazz band in the tradition of his mentors, Count Basie and Lionel Hampton, bands with whom he recorded and toured in his youth. He would apply all the wisdom and experience he gleaned as their sideman, as well as from his years of leadership over his many small groups, and would include songs he made famous with his "little big band" of the 1940s. The Illinois Jacquet Big Band was filled with luminaries and young stars, but unfortunately would only record one studio album entitled "Jacquet's Got It" on Atlantic Records, in 1987. Here we have a very early snapshot of what that band was like at the world famous Village Vanguard club in 1987, New York City. This is the third time Jacquet had played the Vanguard, and had previously broken attendance records in the club with what seemed to be a guerrilla marketing campaign in the streets of NYC in order to launch the debut of his Big Band. Some NYC Jazz fans may recall flyers being distributed all over town, especially in the Times Square area, revealing that the "missing in action" Jazz Legend Illinois Jacquet was indeed "back" with a full 15 piece Big Band on tow. Well, the promotions worked effectively, announcing that "The King" was back to take the jazz world by storm! This is the band after returning from their first major European tour for five weeks during the Summer of 1987, and their last engagement before hitting the studio to record "Jacquet's Got It" for Atlantic Records. As listeners will easily hear, this band rocked the house, and swung hard! Illinois himself is in rare form, playing soulfully and strong, ripping through all his classics with fervor and fire. These wonderful arrangements are mostly by the pen of Eddie Barefield, Wild Bill Davis, Phil Wilson, and Jimmy Mundy. Featured here within the band are veterans such as Irvin Stokes, Rodney Richardson, Johnny Grimes, Eddie Preston, Richard Wyands, Eddie Barefield, Rudy Rutherford, Babe Clarke, and the great Cecil Payne; as well as young lions such as Duffy Jackson, Frank Lacy, Henry Scott and Joey Cavaseno. Young Joey Cavaseno, who now has moved up to what will become a full-time position as lead alto with the band, who has now gained Jacquet's trust, brings in two new excellent young talents in the form of high-note specialist Henry Scott on trumpet, and trombonist Frank Lacy on trombone, working that plunger as well as swinging hard. This performance also features a very relaxed and deeper Jacquet than on most of his recordings; including a funny moment when Jacquet admonishes a patron who is smoking too close to the bandstand, to extinguish their cigarettes. We hope you will enjoy!

Strings 1 is the first disc in a series of recordings that will focus on Perelman's affinity for the violin family. With Mark Feldman and Jason Hwang playing violin, Mat Maneri playing viola, Ivo takes the role of a cello, and although he plays tenor saxophone he easily slips into this role. He played cello for several years before turning to saxophone and even recorded a duo CD with Joe Morris some quarter of a century ago (LEO 249, Ivo Perelman duo featuring Joe Morris; Strings).

Hank Roberts is famous for his emotional drive while Ned Rothenberg is revered among new-music listeners for his extraordinary display of extended technique.
